    The phrase "grasping at straws" comes to mind on this thread.

    As others have mentioned, I think you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who has a stock portfolio and doesn't have some amount of stocks in oil.

    I am not a legal expert, but at what point must a judge recuse himself? Ultimately, while I do agree with the judgment made, I am a bit nervous about the objectivity that can be maintained by any judge who has a possible personal reason to make a ruling.
    I guess this judge should never hear a case related to anything energy, huh?

    And any gay judge should recuse him or herself when deciding over a case regarding homosexuality.

    And no judge may rule on a religious case because he either believes or he doesn't...meaning he's biased either way.

    Should an openly homosexual judge not recuse himself from the prop. 8 case?
